Mozambique: Coastal Exotic Luxury
Mozambique is a vast and beautiful country that was wracked by civil war for nearly 30 years, destroying most of its infrastructure, and much of its wildlife. Much of its strong Portuguese colonial influence has now gone, but the pace of reconstruction has been impressive. The main attractions are the hundreds of miles of unspoiled beaches, deep sea fishing and diving, and the demands of the South African market is ensuring that quality facilities are being introduced. the Bazaruto Archipelago have good lodges and phenomenal marine life – including dugong, lake crocodile and the several species of turtle that nest here. In the North of the country lies the vast Niassa Game reserve, which continues south across the border from Tanzania’s Selous reserve. In spite of rampant poaching, even today reports come in of sightings here of the last of Africa’s great tuskers. Distances are vast, so the logistics are expensive, but Mozambique is a worthy destination for for African purists – and as the years go by, more sustainable tourism will develop.
